Ippolito Caffi, I Moccoletti al Corso
Route through the rooms
The video installation, dedicated to the life and works of the great Roman poet Trilussa, projects on four separate areas of the walls animated pictures, centred around a stream of images created with objects, photographs, letters, postcards, newspapers, drawings and films. The moving pictures follow four main themes: the public man, the private man, the poet, and friendships.
Along the perimeter of the video installation runs a shelf on which a selection of objects from the poet’s studio are displayed, while pictures are hung on the walls. The intention is to give the vistors an experience evocative of Trilussa’s multifaceted character: the public man and the private, his friendships and the feminine world which always surrounded him; the poet, and the amateur artist.
